The characterisation of carbonate fractured reservoir is often a difficult challenge due to the amount of data and the scale issues related to the fault and fracture network. The correct characterisation of the structural framework at all scales has a large impact on the correct understanding of the potentials of carbonate fractured reservoirs (deliverability), on the circulation of fluids (hydrocarbons and water) into these units and on the appraisal and development strategies to maximise the recovery factors in this type of fields. Mechanical Stratigraphy can be an important tool when trying to characterise the fault and fracture network in carbonate fractured sequences if an integrated approach of the available subsurface and outcrop analogues information is considered.
